If you read the essay from the Dallas Morning News that I linked to in my last post, you might have a better idea of what I’ve been going through.
That post has deeply impacted me. I now understand that I am definitely not alone, but there are possibly millions of men that are in the same situation, or about to be.
So with that in mind, I took my wedding ring off this week. A very small, but yet very difficult step (that I have written about previously).
It’s very strange to not feel that band of gold on my left ring finger. I drive with my left hand up, so I see that missing jewelry every time I get in my vehicle. I still have a very visible tanline so it will be sometime before the fact that I wore a wedding ring fades away.
As the days pass, I get more used to the ring not being on my finger. It’s a small step, but yet a very important step in my move to a new reality.
